Studio 54 Salon & Day Spa is committed to beauty from the inside out. The staff members know that a multitude of factors, from vitamin intake to common health problems, play a role in keeping manes and complexions in top-notch shape. That's why its stylists don't just trim away split ends, and its aestheticians do more than merely moisturize skin. The beauty experts also help clients maintain vibrant and healthy skin and hair by referring them to the registered nurse on staff, who performs complete health checks, including measuring blood pressure and screening for diabetes. In addition, Studio 54's staff members offer a range of hairstyles, including options for chemotherapy patients, as well as facials, waxing treatments, and massages. These services utilize vitamin- and mineral-rich ingredients to remove the environment's harmful effects, including sun damage and smog-filled pores.
For the past 18 years, Hair Currents' experienced stylists have trimmed, feathered, and fluffed locks with an array of services. The salon welcomes women, men, and children to begin the 30- to 45-minute cut with a scalp-purifying shampoo to wash away oil, grime, and gremlin hitchhikers. During a careful consultation, the stylist considers each client's hair texture, face shape, and photos of the desired bob or beehive before flashing shears into action. After crafting a custom flattering 'do, the mane mavens wick away wetness with the warm kiss of a hair dryer. Within Hair Currents, pastel-turquoise and pink furnishings and white-edged mirrors create an atmosphere as airy and peaceful as a comforter of cotton candy.

Licensed massage therapist Judy Watkins believes the same, though she strives to access this energy noninvasively with the help of healing touch therapy. She can also combine this treatment with massage in such varieties as Deep-Tissue and therapeutic for an even more soothing experience.
